Job Description

Drive Nussbaum.

OTR Company Drivers get miles and respect, without the lip service.  We’re different and we like that. Our drivers do too.

Nussbaum Transportation Services was founded in 1945, with a single truck by Alden Nussbaum. Over the last 70 years, we’ve been building solid relationships with people and we owe our success to the quality of our drivers. Our hiring philosophy and the reason so many drivers stay with us is that we give you the most accurate picture of what driving for Nussbaum looks like from day one, ensuring there are no surprises and that we never fall short of your expectations.

 

Weekly and Bi-Weekly Home Time Positions

If hired in our Primary Hiring Area, you can expect to get home weekly. However, you can also expect to spend two consecutive weeks away from the house about 4-6 times in a year.

Our Extended Hiring Area offers routes that get you home about every other week. After running two weeks out, you can expect solid home time with 48 hours minimum. Also, you choose the arrival day - Friday or Saturday - and we’ll do our best to make it happen.

Beyond great pay, we make sure our drivers get top-of-the-line equipment, high-tech maintenance, and new-model trucks. Nussbaum has been selected as a Best Fleet to Drive For within the industry six years in a row, and we were recognized as the Best Overall Fleet to Drive For in the Small Carrier category for 2019.
